Event Date:

The SEEP Network


The Global Savings Groups Conference Series is a biennial conference that engages a large and diverse community of stakeholders. The event develops and promotes improved standards of practice, mobilizes knowledge, strengthens partnerships and alliances, and creates opportunities for cross-organizational learning. Since 2011, The SEEP Network has been an active contributor to the Global Savings Groups Conference Series. Each event in this series has also served as a catalyst to increase the scale, sustainability, and impact of Savings Groups in the host country and region.

SG2020: The Future of Savings Groups will take place on March 10-12, 2020 in Durban, South Africa, and offer a platform for attendees to connect, engage and learn from each other about the challenges and opportunities they face in supporting Savings Groups worldwide. This highly interactive and demand-driven event will bring together practitioners, private sector actors, donors, and public sector representatives from around the world. Participants will converge to share lessons learned, evolving practice, and innovative ideas through peer learning sessions, plenaries, lunch dialogues, and a working group meeting.


Peer Learning Sessions will fill 40-minute and 90-minute slots of concurrent sessions and offer one of the most dynamic ways to engage with conference participants during the event. All SG practitioners are encouraged to submit a session proposal. Kindly note that SEEP Members will be given priority consideration.
